Very excellent! Maybe some foil shaping there for cleaner air flow? :thumbup:

OMG, does that mean your leg has to conform to UCI aero restrictions?! (joking, I think) Anyway, much respect, both for your cycling and for your aero-weeniness.

Thanks, (don't let Cervelo know).... :)

What does it weigh? That argon frame looks fast but heavy!
Xentis wheels are pretty light though right?

That's okay, as long as you use your bike and give it all in any test against the chrono. :)

Well, the bike weighs like 8.5kg. So it isn't a weenie at all.

The wheels are in the 1650g if i remember well. Though these are training wheels and are the clincher version. As i said before i've a Zipp900 tubular for races.

The ride of this bike is ok. It's very stiff. Also with the integrated front-end makes steering very crisp. The downside is it's weight when it's going slightly uphill but the races themselves over here are always flat. The wind is your only enemy. I race in Belgium and Holland.

This year i'll keep racing with the Argon but next year i'll search for another frame but so far, this is the 1st tt bike i own. Geometry and size are ok. I've found a nice fit although i'm one of those that thinks that there's always a better way...We'll see next year. As for now let's enjoy with this weapon. :wink:

hm. i think, 8,5 kg is absolutely ok for a tt/triathlon-bike. saving weight at the tt-bike anyway is more a matter of quieting the mind than technical necessity making you faster.
the argon is a real nice-looking frameset, I love it.
which saddle are you riding?
sorry vor mai bed englisch!
